    Avenged Sevenfold are amazing. They put godsmack to shame.

    ok i admit, heard of them but never listened to them. Let me go find something on youtube to listen to. Just gave Nightmare a listen. Good voice but it's not my cup of tea. I prefer Sully and Mr. Tyler and RIP Layne (it will be 10 yrs next year) Staley. Layne had the best voice.....damn him for doing drugs.

    ok sorry get back to your topic .... listing to afterlife.....hey....i have heard this before...i like it.....yeah this is a good one...better then nightmare.

    Listen to So Far Away. That song will confirm you as a fan.
    "All mirrors lead to my palace
    My exotic pleasure temple
    Wherein my court is both gracious and insatiable
    Pure and obscene
    For where pumps the true heart of life
    There too seeps corruption
    And from this my new Eden of nightshades, black
    henbane, sp

    oops i hit flag as spam by mistake...hope it doesn't do anything.

    WOW, what a great song...

    How do I live without the ones I love?
    Time still turns the pages of the book it's burned.
    Place and time always on my mind.
    I have so much to say but you're so far away.

    Plans of what our features hold
    Foolish lies of growin' old
    It seems we're so invincible, the truth is so cold.

    A final song, a last request
    A perfect chapter laid to rest
    Now and then I try to find a place in my mind.

    love his voice! i was expecting this hard crunching song, it wasn't what i was expecting. It's a really a beautiful song. beautul tribute

    i have to say, (although it hurts lol), that song was way better then Alcie in Chains - black gives way to blue ....for Layne Staley. Although i love that song and was cool that Elton played the piano on it. So far away is a more beautiful tribute song...Sorry Alice, i still love ya...but Avenged wins hands down with this song.
    listening to it again...will have to go to itunes and put them on my phone....

    thanks for the topic on them and song choices DG...gotta say i wouldn't have explored into them....

    well i had to listen to Alice again. it's beautiful. One song is not better than the other. both beautiful tributes to lost "brothers"

    Fading out by design
    Consciously avoiding changes
    Curtain drawn, now it's done
    Silencing our tomorrows
    Forcing our goodbyes

    Lay down, black gives way to blue
    Lay down, I'll remember you

    So Alice...you're still tops with me.
    ahh the words Silencing our tomorrows, Forcing our goodbyes....ahh brings a tear

    Glad you saw them and enjoyed. i wonder if they've ever played here? i'm sure they have but i didn't pay attention...well now i know to be on the look out.

    DG, Seize....i keep expecting these loud guitar stomping screaming songs and they're not...hmm

    i don't see comparing GS to A7. ok nobody ban me or shoot me lol but A7 is a younger band, when GS were younger they pounded it out in their songs. GS grown with time...great songs...A7, in 10 years bet their music style will change as well.imo.

    M.Shadows screamed for their first two albums but then for a number of reasons, they up and changed their sound, partly 'cause of his voice and partly just because they were tired of it.

    Synester Gates is one of the best guitarists of this generation, can go from heavy to melodic in no time.

    ahhh, i was reading up on them and the Rev...so young to die, too damn young.
    yeah, not big on the screaming, but i didn't mind when Chester did it. i know i know, don't mention linkin park, but i like some of their songs.......numb is a fav....... Anyway. i might get boo'd but Synester....blows Tony out of the water.( I was thinking as i listened to them).. BUT i'm sure Tony could play like that....not knocking him at all. Just different band styles.

    It sucks that the rev had to go and die but on the other hand, he did it to himself.

    i know....it sucks, these young guys/gals.....lifes too short to begin with, don't f*ck it up and make it shorter. Glad the Aero boys got it together.....wish Layne did.
    And since it's a GS side...glad they have it together too.
